## How should the hunter aim to hit the monkey?

Because of Galilean equivalence, the (approximately) constant gravitational field (approximately) disappears, leaving us with only the horizontal velocity of both the dart and the monkey. In this reference frame the hunter should aim straight at the monkey, since the monkey is stationary.

## Will the hunter hit the monkey?

Yes, the bullet will hit the monkey. As at the same instant when the hunter fires the bullet, the monkey also drops.

## Why should you aim directly at the monkey?

You should aim directly at the monkey because the monkey and the banana will fall with the same acceleration, and therefore will intersect (if the angle and velocity allow the banana to reach the tree).

## What is the equation for projectile motion?

The equation for the distance traveled by a projectile being affected by gravity is sin(2θ)v2/g, where θ is the angle, v is the initial velocity and g is acceleration due to gravity. Assuming that v2/g is constant, the greatest distance will be when sin(2θ) is at its maximum, which is when 2θ = 90 degrees.

## What does the monkey symbolize in a Long Way Gone?

The monkey symbolizes the broken political system that encompasses both the corrupt government and the misguided rebellion that led to civilian deaths during the Sierra Leone civil war. Beah shows that it would be better to act, even with bloody consequences, so as to stop the cycle of destruction.

## What is the velocity at the highest point?

At a projectile’s highest point, its velocity is zero. At a projectile’s highest point, its acceleration is zero.

## Can you shoot a monkey?

Trophy hunting is legal under international law, but unlike the expensive fees charged to kill large game animals like lions and rhinos, licences to shoot monkeys often cost next to nothing. “It’s often free, or trophy fees can be as little as \$20 (£15), so in essence people can just shoot primates,” Ms Ho said.

## What is it you need to do to get the projectile to contact the monkey Why?

The correct answer is 2: Aim directly at the monkey. The constant acceleration due to gravity affects both the monkey and the tranquilizer in the same way. Consequently, the bullet will fall a little bit below the initial aim trajectory (the #2 line in the image).

## What do you call the highest point reached by a projectile?

Solution for (a) The highest point in any trajectory, called the apex, is reached whenvy=0. Since we know the initial and final velocities as well as the initial position, we use the following equation to findy: v2y=v20y−2g(y−y0). v y 2 = v 0 y 2 − 2 g ( y − y 0 ) .

## Does the banana hit the monkey if you aim straight at it?

Would the banana hit the monkey? As is obvious from the animation above, the banana moves in a straight line path in the absence of gravity. As such, a banana aimed directly at the monkey will hit the monkey.

## Does the banana hit the monkey?

Both banana and monkey experience the same acceleration since gravity causes all objects to accelerate at the same rate regardless of their mass. Since both banana and monkey experience the same acceleration each will fall equal amounts below their gravity-free path. Thus, the banana hits the monkey.

## How should the astronaut aim the cannon to hit the monkey on the moon?

How should the astronaut aim the cannon to hit the monkey on the Moon? Explanation: The reason that aiming directly at the monkey works on Earth is that the acceleration of the ball and the monkey are the same. The actual value of this acceleration is irrelevant.

## What are the 3 types of projectile motion?

• Oblique projectile motion.
• Horizontal projectile motion.
• Projectile motion on an inclined plane.

## Is projectile motion 2d or 3d?

Projectile and circular motion are examples of two dimensional motion. Motion in three dimension: Motion in space which incorporates all the X, Y and Z axis is called three dimensional motion. Example: Movement of gyroscope is an example of three dimensional motion.

## What are the 4 equations of motion?

The equations are as follows: v=u+at,s=(u+v2)t,v2=u2+2as,s=ut+12at2,s=vt−12at2.

## What are the types of motion in physics?

According to the nature of the movement, motion is classified into three types as follows: Linear Motion. Rotary Motion. Oscillatory Motion.

## What is curvilinear motion in physics?

Definition of curvilinear motion : motion in which the direction of the velocity of a body is variable and the path of the body is a curved line.

## What are the 7 types of motion?

• Oscillatory Motion.
• Rotational Motion.
• Translational Motion.
• Periodic Motion.
• Circular Motion.
• Linear Motion.
• Uniform Motion.
• Non-Uniform Motion.

## What is the meaning of the end of a long way gone?

Ishmael ends his story not with his safe arrival in America, but with a little tale he heard as a boy: You are a hunter and you are about to shoot a monkey. Before you can pull the trigger, the monkey tells you that if you kill him your mother will die. If you don’t kill him, your father will die.

## What does the moon represent in a Long Way Gone?

The moon appears throughout the book as a reflection of Ishmael’s circumstances. It is bright and shining when good things are happening for Ishmael, such as when he walks with Esther during his rehabilitation.

## How do you hunt a monkey story?

The monkey tried to pull and pull, but to no avail. There was simply no way to get its hand out of the jar without releasing the food. Rather than letting go, though, the monkey refused to drop its dinner. The hunters would then approach and catch the monkey to enjoy their own meal.

## Why is velocity zero at maximum height?

at highest point v = 0 This is due to the body’s velocity is in the upper direction and acceleration is in the downward direction.

## Is acceleration zero at the highest point?

Hence, acceleration is zero at the highest point.
